What does it mean when your car is making a loud fast clicking noise and the engine doesn't turn over?
Answer Starter solenoid defective. Answer if you have replaced your siloniode and you still have the same problem just trun the key on ON then take a screwd…river and touch the two terminals togather quikly and it should work great after. Starter solenoid hooked up reversed or poor ground, low battery or corroded connections @ battery Another Answer It has been my experience that a faulty solenoid or relay will only click once when you try to start the vehicle. A rapid clicking noise would indicate a low battery, poor ground, or corroded connections as stated above.
Answer clicking car It's one of two things. Need a naw starter, or dead battery.
I have a 02 volks wagon passat when I start the car it makes a loud clicking noise however when I start to accelerate the clicking stops but when I decelerate the clicking louder than ever.?
I have a VW Jetta 2001 I have had so many thing done to this car this summer $ 3,000 dollar worth when I turn my car on it goes blank let it set for a day it starts back… up got a cable jump that's last for a week could it ce my battery also took it to auto zone they said my battery was low but I afraid to buy the battery and still have the same problem. please!!! help sign all cashed out,
Answer . More than likely the battery is to weak to start the engine. If it's not the battery, the starter may be the culprit.
Poor battery condition. Loose and/or dirty battery connections. Faulty starter relay. Faulty starter solenoid. Faulty starter.
I turn the key and there is a loud clicking noise. The lights work but the engine is not turning over. Why won't my 1998 4Runner start?
Chances are that the battery does not have enough power to start the vehicle. The battery can be next to dead and the interior lights and some dash lights may come on, b…ut a fully charged battery is necessary to start the vehicle. Have someone use a DC voltmeter to determine if you have the necessary voltage to start the vehicle. The battery should normally read 12.6 volts. If the vehicle has been sitting for a while, chances are it just slowly drained. This is called parasitic drain, and is usually a result of the clock keeping time, saving your radio station presets, etc. Normally, such a small parasitic drain does not affect the battery's ability to start the engine. However, if the battery was weak to begin with, then a minor parasitic drain could weaken the battery to the point that it cannot start the vehicle. First determine the current voltage of the battery. Determine how much voltage is currently in the battery (0v-12.6v). Try charging the battery and see if it holds the charge over the course of a couple days. If it does, then the battery probably has some life left in it. If it does not hold its charge very well, such as not even overnight, then you will definetily want to replace the battery as soon as possible. Hope this helps!
If a car doesn't start and it has a clicking noise, it could be the battery. Another reason it could be is the starter is out.
If just clicking and not starting, most likely a dead battery.
This happened to me this morning, I tried to start my car and there was a single click whenever I turned the key. I have a new battery but noticed the charge had been lower th…an normal lately. I popped the hood and turned the battery cables slightly and the car started and the battery charge indicator went back to normal. Figure the starter wasn't getting enough juice and that the battery cables were the problem.
Most likely you have a bad alternator or a dead battery. its your starter, i can almost gurantee that the starter went to ...if its not that itd be the altern…ator, go get both checked i guess..hope this helps
the solenoid is broken. sometimes if you strike the starter motor sharply this cures the problem.
If it's a Renault they're prone to bad earths. I've just had the same problem, trying to start my kangoo 1.5 dci and just hearing a clicking sound. I ran another earth cable f…rom the existing one bolted to the wing near the battery terminals to the gearbox bell housing. And hey presto she's never started better!! I must add I fitted another starter motor first, but obviously that never solved it. That's 4 hours of my life I aint getting back!
Well to start off there is many things this could be. Some of the most common ones are actually pretty simple to fix. The first thing i would try is taking off your battery …cables and refitting them on. Sometimes corrosion, a bad cable, or a broken adjuster cause it to not have a good connection. The Second thing i would try is charging the battery. Most modern cars have a safety built in that when the car gets to a certain Voltage/Amperage, they make it click to let you know that it needs charged. The third thing i would try, if all that fails, is tapping your starter solenoid with a hammer. the gears inside the solenoid usually tear down after a few years of starting and get stuck. If you don't know anything about cars this could be kind of hard to do. ts usually right on the front of the engine block next to your transmission cooler, that's attached to your radiator. You should see a big cylinder with a little cylinder attached to it. The little cylinder is your solenoid. Good Luck
Dead battery, jammed starter rotor arm - it it's manual, put it in gear and then rock the car back and forth to un-stick the rotor arm. If it's the battery, main lights will b…e dim or not work.
You have not given us enough information. What make, year and model vehicle is it? What engine size and type ( 2.0, 2.5, 3.0, diesel, gas, V8, V6, I4, I6, I5, I3)? Does the …noise come and go? Only immediately after starting? Out of the exhaust? Under the hood only? The entire time it is running? Does it buzz or rattle, clank or clatter? Click, clack, or grumble? Try to describe the noise in as much detail as possible. Could be a cat in the fan belt
A couple of things to troubleshoot here first: 1. Do the car's lights work? Not the interior light, the headlights. If the headlights don't work or they go completely dim whe…n you turn the key, your battery is dead.
If you mean the car will not start or even turn over when you turn the key, that 'clicking' is the starter solenoid making contact like it's supposed to. But there is not …enough power from battery to start engine, only enough to make contacts in solenoid. Bad battery, or loose or corroded battery cable terminals
